Fisherman hailed as Good Samaritan
A 60-year-old fisherman in Hechuan district who has saved dozens of people from drowning over the past three decades has been honored for his bravery. Chen Dafu started working on the Fujiang River in 1988, and has been saving people who have fallen the water in ever since. He has never sought acclaim for his actions, instead focusing on caring for his wife, who has cancer. He was recently named a model Good Samaritan.
